They must have a different kind of duck in Denmark...

What? They're talking to each other. They're using them When they swim, not To swim.

Duolingo's obsession with ducks is going too far.

Yeah, we should cry fowl over this. Contributors can't just wing it, if sentences don't fit the bill. Not everything belongs on the web (between our toes). Are they just egging us on? Just float some ideas, & (that's an andersand) they will quackly see the error of their ways.

Yes, it's easy to get the wrong Anser if you're just dabbling, eider be the first to teal you. (I anticipate down-votes.)

Oh, good, I almost forgot I was learning Danish, thank you Duolingo for reminding me, wouldn't have figured it out if not for the ducks.

The mental picture is awesome.

Is this a thing, or they just made it up?

Is it grammatically correct to say "their tongueS" instead of "their tongue" since they don't have several tongues...?
